PROCESS FOR ADDING NEW EVENTS

There are 3 ways to add an event: either complete an event form on our website; complete a paper event form; or send an email with all information. The event form on the website will automatically go to Diane Nientimp after it is submitted. Diane will then forward the event form to both Jan Valente who will make a flyer, and to Fred Kissinger for the Newsletter and/or its updates. Jan will send the flyer to Diane for inclusion on the website and to Ed Hall to print it for Happy Hour. If not using the form on the website, then the paper form should be given to either Jan or Ed (who will get it to Jan), or the event information can be emailed to Jan at JanValente@Frontiernet.net to make the flyer and to Fred at fkissinger41@gmail.com. If the host makes his/her own flyer, it should be emailed to all of the following: Fred for the Newsletter, Diane (dnientimp@aol.com) for the Website and Ed (eth3067@rochester.rr.com) for posting at Happy Hour.
